Have you even used either of those pads before?
In the 2nd part of my post, talking about not street-driving track pads, I wasn't talking specifically about 2500s (which I know aren't track pads), or the yellows. I was talking about actual race pads, which don't stop well and wear crazy fast when they're not up to temperature. Perhaps those comments weren't relevant... I did skim several posts.

And if a pad is capable of not biting at high temps for a reason other than because it's melting away so fast it doesn't provide any friction, I'd love to hear it.
